Anyone can follow the straight and narrow. Only the corner is the true test of mettle. Only in the corner does a sports car really become a sports car. So it’s all the more important to have a chassis that can master any sporting challenge. And be a match for the high power output of the engine.
The axle components are for the most part made of aluminium, which keeps the vehicle weight and unsprung masses low. The wide track, long wheelbase and specific chassis construction help to deliver particularly precise and agile handling.
The direct steering system of the new 718 models has a perceptibly more immediate ratio than that of the previous models. The results are agile turn-in and an even sportier driving experience – with a customarily high level of comfort.
The comfort-oriented Power steering Plus is available as an option. At high speeds, the steering is as firm as you would expect. At low speeds, the steering ratio adjusts for much easier manoeuvring and parking.
